HAHA. That was pretty short though, wasn't it? And the blurry photographic evidence really... creeped me out for some reason.

EDIT: Okay, hearing Coach Z with an altered voice is even scarier.

Enjoyable, very enjoyable. We got plenty of old references (date, flag day, CGNU (guy holding knife constellation), ghosts (Gen. Tso's chicken constellation), Trogdor! game, Strong Bad Is In Jail, couch patch), and some good footage of makings-fun-of myth/legend documentaries.

I'm glad they didn't take any route like looking at The Poopsmith or Homsar, and went to something I don't think anyone would guess, the Bear-Holding-a-Shark. Go them.

Maybe I am just seeing things, but aren't those Homestar's shoes in the place of the bear's feet? :eek:

You know what would be really cool, was if they were to release a short "Walking With Trogdor" type thing, this Wednesday at 9:00 pm. That would rule.

It was OK. The main body of the e-mail was just sort of "meh, it was OK", but the intro was pretty darn funny! "Walking with Trogdor." And I must admit, I really liked the bit with the constellations. *Is given some new ideas for AC: WW*

It was decent... not THAT good. I thought narrator was better, 7/10
Favorite quote: "All of a sudden, he was growlin' and poopin' all over the place." That was funny XD

Oh man! That was e-mail heavan for me. I love how TBC parodied all of those kinds of cryptozoology shows. I am always watching those shows. I loved the Walking with Dinosaurs reference. That would be very awesome if they did create a Walking with Trogdor toon on Wednesday. Fingers crossed! The only thing I didn't like was the overall shortness of it. Ah Well. Still a great e-mail.

9.5/10

Ha. I've actually asked StrongBad the same question about 3 different times. Of course, I never called them "Mysterious Myths and Legendary Legends" which I guess, *tear* is why he never picked mine.

Anyway. Solidly good e-mail. I enjoyed it. Not the best, not the worst... but entertaining enough. I laughed here and there but my favorite part was the out of focus bear running with shark, lol.

Anyway. I'd give it an 8/10 if I rated these, which I guess I do since I've been doing it lately. Anyway.
lol.

The Chaps never cease to amaze me with their ability to ape and mimic so many formula genres.

I know this isn't A&C but hey. This has something to do with the e-mail. And it's funny in a way

Pretty good email.

Bubs would be the one to sell crappy merchandise.
Strong Sad would be the one to doubt the myth and say it was a foriegn exchange student.
And Homestar would be the sack of crap that has crappy footage of the monster.

Not the best.
Not as good as narrator or technology.

Somehow the whole "Bubs selling shark merchandise" scene reminded me of Shark-Tooth-Bubs.There wasn't anything specific though, and there certainly was room to fit him in there somewhere.

Oh, man.

This one was a friggin' classic.

It could have been a little longer, though. I wish they had talked about more myths and legends.

9/10.

I adored the Morgan Freeman easter egg. WHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!

Yeah, it coulda been longer, but if it's gonna be long and boring *COUGH*lady..ing*COUGH*, then why bother? I prefer shorter, funnier emails.

Also, I think this is the first email where I found every single easter egg on my own! Walking with Trogdor is my fave though, as I loved Walking with Dinosaurs.

Heh, second week in a row a Strong Bad E-mail parodies something you'd figure it would have gotten to awhile ago, but this time I thought the great concept was better executed than the movie trailer thing. Really funny stuff - I particularly liked the whole constellation sequence, the Coach Z easter egg and "Homes With Rollercoasters In Them Network", but it was entertaining. A-

Being someone who has watched these animal myth shows on TV, I thusly found it very funny.

P.S. The easter eggs where the best part. "The corn army is no match for the mighty warrior!"

9.8/10
